It is most likely a "dev" thing, it's connected to glade I think

Same problem here. I'm unable to find a workaround or find info googling. Shows a bunch of gtk deprecated errors. It seems that is completely outdated. Installing from github shows the same errors. It seems that the developers say they are not interested in keeping this package for other distros except Elementary OS

Can anyone get this to work. For this has been crashing for many months now every time I click the sign in button.

I have the same problem as kurosmael. Does someone know about this error?

I've got the error when trying to add an account on a fresh installed birdie:

[_LEVEL_FATAL 18:38:15.711830] [Gtk] gtk_widget_get_sensitive: assertion 'GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed
[_LEVEL_FATAL 18:38:15.711863] birdie will not function properly.
[1]    1315 segmentation fault (core dumped)  me.ivonunes.birdie

Am I the only one ? Is it a packaging thing, or a dev thing ?

@tuxitop there is a new meson thing for it

Error while building:

ERROR: Language Vala does not support position-independent executable

Seems like downgrading meson to 0.48.1-1 would result in a successful build.

Consider to change the dependency granite-git to granite

@TheKinrar i changed the build system of pidgin to meson but it was kind of wonky at first, but i fully ported the style to meson and now it works
